Re: Ironies In Wrestling

I always found it ironic that Edge said he’d be the man to end Evolution, and yet this happened. First he took I.C. Title off Orton , which led to Orton challenging for the World title, which led to him getting the title and turning face. However at that point in time he sucked as a face , and eventually Batista was turned face . Long story short the demise of Evolution started when Edge took I.C. Title off of Randy Orton

Sid Eudy is part of WCW where Ric Flair is HC and in the main event events. In May 1991 he leaves for the WWF to take Hogans spot and get into the Main Event of WrestleMania VIII. One month later, Ric Flair is fired by WCW, which ultimately negates Sids main event slot as a Hogan vs Flair match is far more lucrative.

And one more...

June 1987: The bloom is off the rose and Tom Magee is no longer considered the next WC. His last house show appearance before goin on hiatus until 1988 was in June in Texas. Another wrestler made his debut in the same card...and this man actually became Vince’s next “world champion”. It was Dingo Warrior.

Re: Ironies In Wrestling

CM Punk's pipe bomb.

-He mentions john Laurinaitis, and Laurinatis makes his on-screen character debut.
-He mentions Brock Lesnar, and Lesnar returns the next year.
-He mentions Paul Heyman, and Heyman returns the next year.
-He mentions that the company will get taken over by "Vince's idiotic daughter and doofus son-in-law", and they did the whole Authority storyline.

It's ironic that the Hell in a cell is touted as such a devastating structure, when it could be considered less dangerous than a regular cage. Sure it's got a roof. But the walls are much further away from the ring. Meaning you have far greater odds of being smashed into steel in a cage match. Whereas it's technically 100% possible to have a normal match inside the cell, without ever touching metal.
It's also ironic how the most dangerous moments of a cell match are the ones that happen outside of the structure... Even though the whole point of the cell is supposed to be that guys are trapped inside with no way out lol.

I mean, you could nitpick it and say that Vince "cheated" to win in '99 and thus it's not really *that* ironic, but even then there'd still only been an equal number of winners on both sides.

Ah, I misunderstood what you were saying.

I thought you meant more people have either won from #1 or #2 than from #30 when as we know that's not the case, as 3 winners have won from #30 and just 2 from each of the others.

But if you're adding them together as both start in the ring at the same time, then sure.

I'll just add another, which is something Raven or Al Snow (can't remember which) once said: The irony about pro wrestling is that the wrestling itself is the least important part. The charisma of the superstars and the drama and storylines that accompany them are what get people's attention the most and draw money.
I can't like this enough omfg. I wish people and this whole generation understood this. There is the problem with this era

Re: Ironies In Wrestling

Bret Hart left WWF on '97 due to The Montreal Screwjob on Survivor. The next day appears on WCW and after beign WCW World Champion was disposable.

On 2009 he returned to WWE... 10 Years later, despite was inductee to WWE HOF, he shows AEW World Championship on Double or Nothing.
